“Best Evidences” is clear, objective and well-documented with evidence that demonstrates the earth is young (around 6000 years) and Scripture is Truth. It demonstrates how the “old earth” philosophy is an attack on the character of God and is incompatible with a literal historic-grammatical approach to Scripture. Continue reading

Book Review: The New Answers Book 1 – Ken Ham General Editor

“The New Answers Book: 1” is an outstanding compilation of excellent questions related to the Evolution/ Creation discussion.

Book Review: Creation – Facts of Life by Gary Parker

“Creation – Facts of Life” by Gary Parker is an excellent testimony of how a man like Gary Parker, former evolutionist, tried for three years to prove evolution to creationist professors, but saw the light and now uses the facts to teach the Truth. Parker is an amazing source of wisdom as God has taken a man who was well-trained in evolution and now is able to defend the Truth of Scripture.  His Biology and Geology degrees make him an expert in proving Evolution wrong!

Book Review: The Amazing Story of Creation from Science and the Bible by Duane Gish

The Amazing Story of Creation from Science and the Bible by Duane T. Gish

This is an incredible book giving a bird’s eye view of God’s biblical account of creation.  Eight short chapters give factual information on why evolution is not compatible with reality and why the Biblical account is the only possible explanation.  He begins with the immensity of our solar system and universe.  He explains succinctly that there could not be a big bang, because explosions always result in disorder, not the order of God’s creation. He aptly explains the need for a divine Creator in the protection of the earth, the earth’s 23.5 degree tilt on its axis and in the creation of plants and animals.  This volume is simply written so a child could understand it and so an adult would be challenged by the details presented.  His treatment of evolution answers questions related to why evolution could not have happened. I especially appreciated his presentation for why it would be impossible for animals to evolve from sea to land and air animals.  His explanation for the existence of dinosaurs is short, but clear on God’s creation of them.  He offers several explanations for their extinction.  His description of whether man came from Adam or from an ape deals with the foolish “discoveries” that were actually hoaxes.  And finally the story of the bombardier beetle will give every Creationist confidence that evolution is impossible.  Use this book to help someone dealing with the biblical creation account.  It’s very faithful to Scripture.
